The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It also hosted the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

Our tour guide (who is a volunteer) was very knowledgeable. Next time we go we will allow more time (more than 2hrs) to spend in the sports museum as there is... More

Tour guide was informative and we went all over the ground - which is fantastic. As cricket lovers we were... More

Possibly the Greatest Place on Earth. A world class facility in a world class sporting city. The MCG feels like home.

This is a great place to take a photo if youre just visiting or passing by. If you have time catch a game! Make sure to grab great seats like behind the goals. Trying to catch a football when it goes over the net can be pretty fun.

This is a really magnificent cricket ground and we could feel the excitement whilst we were touring around the ground in anticipation of the afternoon match. A really interesting, enlightening tour around the stadium both for sports fans or non sports fans. We were shown around by Ken who made the tour both interesting and also added some humour to...

Joined a public tour of the museum and the grounds on this day of the anniversary of Phil Hughes death, the visit was emotional. Although I am not much of a crazy cricket fan, the game was interesting and engaging. MCG is my second visit to a field after the previous in Perth (WACA). These were fabulous. I understood why...

It is well worth going to this ground when there is a big AFL game on as the atmosphere can be electric.
